Fulcrum is a non-stop-motion animation film made before your eyes, using robotics, intricately carved miniature sculptures and mysteriously complex technology. Join a woman on a train journey through

northern moors and towns as she imagines a world transformed.

Alongside, an electric guitar is quietly plucked, bashed and strummed by an assemblage of spidery

metal machines. 

In a second space, a small cinema has been created showing the scenes the robotic machines are

videoing, projected live onto the screen.  Here the hidden details of the diorama are revealed and an animated story unfolds - accompanied by the floating sounds of the guitar.

"Very atmospheric, sets the imagination and memories whirring."
